Creator: Leelee Sobieski
New York City-native actress, born June 10, 1983, best known for such movies as Never Been Kissed, Eyes Wide Shut, Joy Ride, The Glass House, and Public Enemies. She also played a rookie cop on the rapidly cancelled CBS show NYC 22.
- Famous Ancestor: She claims to be a descendant of King John III Sobieski of Poland.
- One Woman Song: "Why Leelee Won't Love Me" by Primitive Whore.
- Overly Long Name: Her full name is Liliane Rudabet Gloria Elsveta Sobieski.
- Playing Gertrude: Due to her height, when she was younger, she was able to play older characters, like on NewsRadio when she was 14, playing a girl taking her SATs (and not taking them seriously, indicating she wasn't just some young prodigy).
- Star-Derailing Role: Fresh off momentum from Never Been Kissed and Eyes Wide Shut as the next It Girl, The Glass House was her first headlining role. A critical (holding 20% at Rotten Tomatoes) and, worse, commercial failure ($18m domestic TOTAL, though opening the week after 9/11 did not help) ended that route real quick, and she's been practically invisible since.
